Beginner Class Riders  NEW FOR 2020!

A “beginner” is defined as a rider that has NOT competed in any form of motorcycle racing at any track prior to January 1, 2019.  
 
We are most likely the only track in America that grants beginner riders 2 years to race in the beginner class.  Over the years we have seen new riders have bike trouble, get injured, or have other issues in their first year of racing and not be able to complete a full season of racing.  And all riders do not advance at the same rate, so in an effort to be as fair as possible, we allow them to race for two years.  
 
Beginner classes are for new riders to try racing to see if they like it.  It is not a place to plan on winning a series championship.  When a rider moves up in bike size, they CANNOT DROP BACK to a beginner class.
 
Swan MX Raceway Park reserves the right to place riders according to their speed & ability. Riders will be advanced at our discretion and may be advanced throughout the year out of the beginner class, if necessary.  Series points will not transfer from class to class.  
 
★  Protests:  All protests concerning rider eligibility must be submitted BEFORE Round 4 (June 12, 2020).  Protests concerning bike eligibility or any other racing issues must be submitted the day of the event, before awards are given out!  This applies to all classes, not just beginner classes.  
 
★  Sandbagging:  If it is determined that a rider is sandbagging, they will immediately be advanced and will lose any accumulated series points.
 
 
FIRST YEAR BEGINNER RIDERS:
★  All riders competing in their FIRST year of racing will be allowed to race without being subject to advancement.  They will be allowed to complete the entire series and not be protested or bumped out of their beginner class.  
 
★  The rules of advancement (listed below) do not apply to first year beginner riders.  However, if prior results are found for a rider competing elsewhere previously, they are then subject to be advanced.  So PLEASE be honest and sign up for the correct class.  We truly hate having to bump riders out of the beginner classes.  
 
★  First year beginner riders may race another class.    
 
 
SECOND YEAR BEGINNER RIDERS:
★  Riders who are in their second year of racing may ride in the Beginner class again, HOWEVER, they will now be subject to the rules of advancement listed below:  
 
- Three 1st place finishes in a Beginner class = rider will be advanced  
- Four 2nd place finishes in a Beginner class = rider will be advanced  
- Or a combination of a total of four 1st & 2nd place finishes.  
 
* Subject to a class entry minimum of 5 riders, or at the discretion of Swan MX Raceway Park.
* Double Points paying races will be counted as ONE event for this purpose.  
 
★  Second year beginner riders may race another class. BUT if they place in the TOP 30% they will be moved out of the beginner class.  (Top 30% based on 8 rider class minimum.)
